The Race Across America, more commonly referred to as RAAM, is known as the World's Toughest Bicycle Race. The route from Oceanside, California to Annapolis, Maryland traverses over 3,000 miles and climbs 175,000 feet across 12 states. On today's episode, we'll hear from Dustin Dinh, a dentist turned ultra cyclist who rode in the 2015 edition of RAAM.

We'll be covering what to do and what not to do out on the roads of RAAM, and we'll also be getting a glimpse into what it's like to crew for a RAAM racer from one of his crew members, Dawn Morgan Ellis. There's a whole lot of awesome ultra talk ahead, so grab an espresso and let's roll! 🚲💨

Episode Transcript

I've been an ultra-endurance athlete since 2011. Since then I've bicycled 3,000 miles across the USA to fight human trafficking, participated in the Race Across America (RAAM), ridden twice non-stop from San Jose to Los Angeles (450 miles) and once out-and-back (900 miles), and completed over 50 double centuries, earning me the title of youngest ultra cyclist ever to be inducted into the California Triple Crown Hall of Fame.
